Continental Airlines To Expand Wi-Fi Service
Wednesday, 23 March 2011
Continental Airlines' parent company, United Continental Holdings, Inc., Inc., has submitted a letter of intent to inflight entertainment provider LiveTV to inform them of Continental Airline's decision to expand their inflight WiFi services and switch to the company Ka-band, beginning next year. Currently, WiFi services are offered on only 14 aircraft, but with the expansion there will be 200 737 and 757 aircraft that will offer the service for those flying within the continental U.S.

Ka-band will be able to offer increased speed, which will allow passengers the ability to have better connection capabilities. The aircraft will all be equipped with DIRECTTV, which will allow passengers to access 95 channels of live TV as well as superior inflight internet connection that will allow them to perform tasks such as sending emails, browsing websites, and downloading files. Ka-band will be using ViaSat's ViaSat-1, which will be put into orbit late in 2011.
